Shopper’s Guide (GMO’s)

(Since  there is so much standing in the way of having our preferences heard In Washington,  where it counts and these endless regulations could have the potential to protect our American Health;  we have little choice for the present — other than to find ways to figure the mess out for ourselves.  Thankfully, there are others with the ability to help us here, we don’t have to take the time to re-invent the wheel.   But we still must do our best to keep on “demanding our rights and voices be listened to” for our laws ARE built around these concepts. 

I just now took the time to download this guide.  It is good.  If you haven’t done so, please take a look at it.  Jan)

Do you know which supermarket foods are genetically engineered? This is probably the most urgent question the public has about these novel foods. Opinion polls show that up to 90 percent of the American public wants GE foods labeled. But despite this overwhelming demand, almost no foods on U.S. grocery shelves reveal their secret, genetically engineered ingredients.
That’s why we created the True Food Shoppers Guide to Avoiding Genetically Engineered Food fourteen years ago! We believe everyone has the right to know what’s in the food we purchase and feed to our families. While we work hard to pass mandatory GE food labeling at the state and federal level, until there’s labeling, our Shoppers Guide can help you navigate the aisles with confidence.

We’ve seen that our government, under pressure from the biotechnology industry, has not required the labeling of GE foods. And the biotech industry does not voluntarily identify them, fearing, probably correctly, that the majority of Americans would avoid GE foods if given a choice. As a result, the U.S. public has been deprived of its right to choose whether to buy and consume these engineered foods. However, this is not the case with most of our major trading partners around the globe who have instituted mandatory labeling of all GE foods and ingredients.

Our True Food Shoppers Guide to Avoiding GE Foods is the first of its kind, first published in October of 2000. In fact, the Shoppers Guide is what launched the True Food Network!

The Guide is designed to help you reclaim your right to know about the foods you are buying, and help you find and avoid GE foods.
